Attending ‘my’ place of Worship

It is my understanding that :
Guiding recognises that faith and worship is a very important factor in most peoples lives. Faith, belief and Worship enriches peoples lives in so many different ways.
Guiding itself is a non-religious, non-political organisation. This being said guiding supports those members who choose to attend places of worship and to express themselves in a respectful and diligent way that allows for them to respect and live with themselves, their family,community, their environment and the world around them.

Promise Ceremony

General discussion had on what is a “superior being”/ imposing ones views on another re their ‘Superior Being’ rather than giving and receiving of examples of same. Jess and Kira have decided not to reaffirm/ make their promise next time the Gipp’s Guides meet.

It was decided that rather than just make the Promise each would wait until they have a clearer idea of who/ what their ‘Superior Being’ is exactly. This is good as when their individual Promise is made they will make it then with a clarity of heart and mind. 

By waiting  there will be time to really arrange a really memorable Promise ceremony for these members.

Sumars promise

Last meeting Samar made her Promise.  And then the thunder rumbled all around in one big clap as we all reaffirmed our Promise along with Samar as she made hers.  Amazingly this thunder overpowered all voices as we identified and voiced our own Superior Being.  ‘He’ had the last say.

An overview of the Olave Program , the Olave Registation and the syllabus for the Olave-Baden Powell Award was handed out.

There’s going to be a lot happening over the next few years once the Gipps Guides gets under way.
